Full Description

In June 2015, a walkover survey was undertaken in Lamington Forestry block, Tain by Anne Coombs on behalf of the Forestry Commission Scotland to identify and demarcate archaeological sites in advance of clear fell operations.

Site 2; Lade. The lade is extensive and clearly visible running roughly parallel to the Aldie burn. The lade ends where it joins with the burn at the west end but the east end was not found but it appears to continue through the trees. In places the lade is completely clear of trees but for long stretches there are trees on the bank. The lade was covered with windblow to the east of Site 3. To the west of this stretch of the lade the stone sides of the lade are visible. The lade is clearly marked on the 1st and 2nd Ed OS maps. Some of the trees were marked with tape and sections were photographed and gps taken.<1>
